How to complain to the council
We aim to provide a high standard of service to all our customers, but we know that we don't always get it right first time. To improve services, we need to know when you are not happy with any part of the service you have received from us or our contractors.
If you feel that the service we have provided has fallen below the standard you expect, please complain.
We will thoroughly investigate your complaint, and it will not affect the service we provide to you.
We have recently changed our complaints procedure to make it a simpler and easier for you.
The Audit and Corporate Governance Committee receives a report that reviews complaints received during the previous year. By analysing the complaints the committee can identify any trends and suggest any service improvements. You can view a copy of the report for 2011/12 from the downloads menu.
Local Government Ombudsman (LGO) annual review
Each year, the LGO publishes an annual review. This review summarises the complaints about this council that the ombudsman's office has dealt with during the previous year.
